As a mature ‘savvy’ woman who has lived happily alone, by choice, for more years than I’ve got fingers, I think I’m qualified to help other women who find themselves also doing it solo for whatever reason.

But there are challenges along the way, and I’ve probably faced most of them at one stage or another.  If you are struggling, because you are solo due to circumstances, take heart, and know that you are not alone.  For those who are already embracing the single life, stick around, and nod sagely while you read about the ups and downs of doing it solo.
